chamber when she came to listen to some of the deliberations i heard one of you commissioners say when you tear down commissioner park we want this and that but i'd like to bring to your attention when candle stick was built and part of the bayview hill was taken away as land filed human remains from the bayview were taken from the bayview hill and used as in fill as candle stick park. i say this because i want to speak about your planners is true and some of you are architect and some of you are very well versed with land use you have to pay attention to the history of the san francisco. this land belongs to the mellone
your director gets you the information and you have to read it 18 treat i didn't see we are signed by california tribes and the united states government all of the 18 treat i didn't see were not ratified so it goes like this if you don't pay attention to the indigenous people all that we built now in this country jungle is for nothing. so i'm making that statement. now having said that, i pay attention to the ethnics commission i'm sure you're aware of there were some deliberations so when the constituents of san francisco asked for information or your notification were done and some of you commissioners have deliberated on the
notifications those are important things for the constituents of san francisco. so i don't want to blame the director i've been in touch with him from time to time, i know he means well, i don't want to advise him but we need to do the right thing when it comes to our ethics commission and the documents required thank you very much. >> good afternoon dr. espanola jackson. i i would like to state that number 6 that i asked to come off the calendar do not need to come off we've alleged on that because of the fact i was part of the group that okayed and we had open house i didn't remember the address to back to this.
